|AS THE WORLD CUP BEGINS…KICK OFF FOR THE #KICKOUTAPARTHEID CAMPAIGN! |
It’s time to score a goal for Palestine!
We are launching the global #KickOutApartheid campaign with our new website dedicated to the campaign for justice in sports, to the World Cup and beyond!
Israel has violated the principles of FIFA in a variety of ways that would normally warrant disciplinary actions and even a suspension of its membership. However, the politics of FIFA have prevented the organization in the past from taking such action. Its internal by-laws have even been amended to make it more difficult for the Palestine Football Association (PFA) to demand such action. Consequently, it is now the responsibility of civil society to apply the popular pressure necessary to bring this about.
Sportspeople from around the world are wearing wristbands for Palestine and raising the Palestinian flag to show their solidarity throughout the 2022 World Cup. Join us to take action.
|TAKE ACTION TO TELL FIFA TO KICK OUT APARTHEID |
Here are some actions that you can take to tell FIFA that it’s time to kick out Israeli apartheid.
Join thousands of individuals and nearly 100 organizations that have already joined the campaign for justice.
|WHAT CAN YOU DO DURING THE WORLD CUP? |
Bring a Palestinian flag to stadia, viewing parties and other World Cup events
Hang a Palestinian flag in your window or balcony
Wear a Palestinian flag armband or share some with your friends
Print out “Kick Out Apartheid” images as stickers and posters in your community
We will share news, action alerts and information throughout the World Cup, including social media storms, expression of solidarity by athletes and fans, and more!

|JOIN THE CAMPAIGN|
We are launching the #KickOutApartheid campaign to intensify our global efforts to hold Israel accountable for its ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people.
We are joining with the athletes who risk their careers to take a stand against normalization and the Palestinian footballers who have to fight to play every day, facing colonialism, apartheid and occupation.
Join Just Peace Advocates, Friends of Sabeel North America, the Canadian BDS Coalition, the Palestine Football Association and so many organizations like Samidoun, Canada Palestine Association and Palestinian and Jewish Unity — as well as individuals like Roger Waters, Chris Hedges, Saeed Mousa Alejawey and more who have already endorsed the call to #KickOutApartheid.
